The school board discussed a district report about student permit policy, which regulates how students can gain access to specific schools.
The report included several suggestions for the board to give new priority for permits to students with special circumstances.
During the discussion, board Vice President Mary Boger criticized “confusing” language in the district’s assessment.
She also emphasized the board’s role in taking on the issue of permit policy, which had been proposed by district staff, adding that the regulations would be taken up with board involvement, whether the process involved a hybrid committee of board and staff members, or not.
WHAT IT MEANS
The board will consider an approach for changing student permit policies, which regulate how students can gain permission to attend specific schools.
